that any of us would say oh, i love it. i don't live love it but i thin good job of negotiating where there are some wins and losses and it is about even. >> house republicans are keeping their powder dry. >> he wants to wait and see it on paper before he commit to voting for it. so right now at least we don't know whether a deal that is likely to pass in the senate could pass the house of representatives. are you surprised and isn't it interesting that vice president joe biden and senate republican leader mitch mcconnell have taken this thing and put it together i think it is quite interesting to me. >> it speaks to the power of personal relationship to me. interestingly it speaks to the relationship between mcconnell and harry reid. clearly the personal animosity got to be too much for those two to continue negotiating. clearly the president was happy with biden being a part of this final push here. if the reports are right, he is coming up to sell the deal to him. a lot of whom have expressed reservations about him. >> now, let's get reaction from the senate side. senator tom cobur
